Step By Step - Sleek Sexy Chignon How To
If you want to copy Anna's sleek sexy updo follow the steps listed below and provided by Hollywood Hairstylist Robert Hallowell:
1. Start with dry straightened hair which has either been wet or dry washed to remove dirt and debris.2. Working on 2" sections of pre-straightened hair, apply a strong sculpting cream or gel with a fine hair friendly tooth comb.
Note: Select a product compatible with your hair type and texture. The goal is to create a solid hold on the hair so that the chignon has grip and longevity.
3. Use the comb to direct all of the hair backwards towards the back of the head. Optionally you can create this look with or without a fringe and/or various parts.4. Gather hair into a ponytail with a base positioned halfway between the top and bottom of the back of the head.
7. Using the index finger of one hand positioned at the base of the ponytail, lift the twisted pony up and over and wrap clockwise or counterclockwise until all of the hair has been used to form a bun.8. Firmly anchor the bun in place with bobby pins either in a color to match or contrast your current hair color.
9. Apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands. Massage together and lightly swipe over the top of the finished hairstyle.10. For extra hold spritz a bit of firm hold hairspray into the palms of your hands. Lightly swipe over the finished bun.
